Description

This delightful book is the first comprehensive architectural guide to Bath, England’s finest Georgian city. Full of new discoveries and lively descriptions of the city’s notable buildings, the book follows in the great tradition of the Pevsner series. It features superb, specially taken color illustrations throughout and numerous easy-to-use walking maps.

The great set-pieces of Bath-the famous Pump Room, The Circus, Royal Crescent-are embedded in a graceful urban landscape developed by a long succession of gifted local architects. The city’s Roman roots are represented by the remains of its extraordinary baths, its medieval prosperity by the splendid Abbey. Exquisite villas and terraces on the surrounding hills add further variety. For all who share an interest in the buildings of Bath-from architect to historian, tourist to armchair traveler-this is an irresistible volume.
